PAGE FOURTEEN <AKK.) oooun raw* TCTMPAT, OCT. 1^ 1MI SelfWoundingSaid On Declinein Korea By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON (fir-In the Korean War, as in all others, there are gome soldiers who deliberately wound themselves to get out of battle or out of the Army. But the Army believes, although It can't prove It one way or the other, that the number In tlite via is comparatively small. In response to questions, the provost marshal general's office inade a spot check of records o! the Far East Command from the period July 1, 1951, to June 30, 1952. The o'flce said that showed only seven cases which were established definitely as self-inflicted wounding. However, other Army officers with long experience In such matters point out that II is difficult to detect and prove an actual case of Eelf-lnfllcled wound. Almost the whole burden of evidence rests on the surgeons In the field who treat wounded men and on checks made Two Men Quizzed Of Woman's Death STUTTGART 0 J ) — The nlpht clerk of a Little Rock hotel was found dpfld in the back seat of fin automobile here yesterday and her two companions are being questioned by city imd county police. She was Mrs. Grace Hoyden, 45, of the Southern Hotel nt Little Rock, Sheriff Harold Woodson said. He did not give the cause of hfir death. _ . Woodson said Mrs. Haydcn's two companions, Ralph Burke Shf.ddox and Faith Burke Shnddox. whose address WH.S given as the Southern Hotel, are being questioned. at the scene by investigators, Musi R«ly on Typ* And they must rely primarily on the type of the wound (Including whether suspicious powder burns Irom close firing of » weapon and .he location of the wound) and on x?stlmony of the man and his comrades to show conclusively the act was Intentional. But If a cose can be proved, the going Is rough for the soldier who tries It. He Is guilty of violating- Article 115 of the Universal Code of Military Justice, dealing with malingering and the avoidance of duty. There Is a maximum sentence of seven years hunt labor and dishonorable discharge possible—and In time of war the maximum provision may be suspended and even heavier sentence Imposed. If investigations show the man was of sound mind at the time he deliberately wounded himself, he receives no disability payments upon discharge. Few Among Vets Self-wounding Is an act of utmost desperation usually arising out of fe»r of battle which the soldier hasn't yet experienced. Old timers of the Army say they have nrjtlc-: o the majority of cases are arnonfi men who have not. yet ccen much action. The soldier who ROCS through his first ongagenu and finds that ho and most of the men In his outfit arc alive mid unhurt, has passed his most desperate anxiety and fear. There is one feature of the Korean War which may help to explain the apparent low Incidence of sclf-lnflictcd wound cases. In World War It there was no rotation system. The rotation system in Korea, under which the average man can figure he will start home after anywhere from 11 to about 14 months, makes a difference In soldier thinking, say the exi>erts. He has a known, definite time when he can expect to get itirough with his ]oh and he doesn'1 need to puncture himself with bullet to get out. WAGES HEALTH BATTLE—Adm. William IT.

Fudge Refuses Dismiss Jury In Oil Probe WASHINGTON Iff}— U. S. District udge Jame-s H. Klrkland yesterday efused to discharge a special grand ury organized here last month to investigate an alleged Interaational 11 monopoly. Five large ol! companies had ask- d the court to dismiss the grand ury or transfer the proceedings to he southern district of New York. The judge said he was Impressed >y the companies' plea that the Inquiry here would cause them hardship because most of their records are in principal office* In New York. "But the concern for the calam- ty indicated must stop at the stages of sympathy," he said.
